Carols by Candlelight

Bring your rug, chair and your best singing voice to one the biggest annual community events in Cairns. Carols by Candlelight attracts thousands of residents and visitors for a feast of Christmas cheer.

The evening doubles as the major fundraiser for the Mayor's Christmas Cheer Appeal.  Proceeds from the sale of merchandise goes towards the distribution of food hampers to around 700 local families who might otherwise go without on Christmas Day.

The 2015 Carols by Candlelight will be held at Fogarty Park on Sunday 13 December, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Fireworks and temporary road closure 

There will be a fireworks display at the conclusion of Carols by Candlelight, on the Eastern Lagoon Lawn at 8:30pm. This will require a short closure (between 8.25pm and 8.40pm) of the access road to the Salthouse and Marina, from the Pier Point Road roundabout.
